Manori Tourism

Manori beach, along with Gorai beach is a growing favourite among back packers and people who just want to cross over to the peace and quiet of the country side for a while.

One day off from work. No time to travel too far. Low on petrol and just enough hours to pack up and leave for a refreshing day out. Manori offers much more than just a day's getaway to the beach. The two kilometer long beach in Manori is the nearest to the hustle and bustle of the city of dreams, yet far away from it. Manori is home to fishing communities, and a culture very reminiscent of Goa, the whole area given ample shade by a carpet of coconut and cashew trees that line the beach, hammocks tied to them, making you want to switch to your vacation side immediately. Other than the picnickers, the spiritually inclined will find Manori truly satisfying with places like the two Nath Sampradaya Ashrams, The Samudreshwar temple and the Global Vipassana Pagoda to go to.

FAQs on Manori

What is the best time to visit Manori?

Manori is a great destination to travel to all year round, October to March being the best time, as the climate will be comfortable with low humidity levels. Summers in Mumbai are prey to the terrible humidity levels, making it uncomfortable to travel even short distances. But since Manori is a shaded, beautiful beach, it becomes even more irresistible during the summers, where a dip can cool you off. The best time, however would be any time other than summer, where you can lie on the sand without the fear of getting sun burnt.

Ask a question from the travellers who have experience.

Q. If you want to go for the day from morning to evening with family, do you get some kind of a outhouse or something just for the day so that the elders and kids could just use the washroom, chill out even take a small nap?

- Make sure you book your hotel/resort rooms in advance and make sure the rooms in your name are there on the day you will be present. Many hotels in Manori are known to play with their customer bookings to cope with the crowd on busy days. Beware of resorts asking you to give up your cottages for smaller, stingier apartments.
- The beach can be really lonely during some week-days. Advisable to carry own food on weekdays especially at morning or afternoons.
- Carry lots of sunscreen! If not for spiritual purposes, go with family and friends, and carry along some games !
